    It's better. I will say though:

    Messaging needs improving, when I go to my "conversations" it shows my name if I was the last person to send a message. I suppose because technically the last message there is from me, but it needs to show the recipients. It also needs to be real time, or slightly out. My mate sent me a message so I checked on there and it wasn't telling me there was a message.

    Still needs work but it's definitely an improvement, might start using that instead of the mobile site

    Yeah what would you like instead? Text notifications of who has done what to you?

    I'm liking it so far. I usually don't use Facebook on my phone outside of groups, but it is nice to see I have more options. Now, if we could just "like" comments. That was the first thing I tried and it didn't work. :\

    Similar to the ME tile you know it can flip and tell you any recent activity like Jane Smith wrote on your wall, Doug sent you a message, Alex liked your comment.

    Be more informative more information the better. Do you agree?

    I really like it! I've deleted it on my BB already. Filters seem to be working.
    Although, having this app takes away from some of the "coolness" factors of the WP platform integration into the phone itself. That's still there, but now that there is an actual APP, seems to make it like everyone else.

    I like it a loooooot. Banner images should just use your Timeline though, it's filled for me with ugly photos and meme faces lol.

    I agree. It seems to me that the banner images are only pulling from "Photos of you," correct? I'd much rather it use random photos from my own albums. I haven't seen my own pictures in the banner at all.

    The layout looks gorgeous though.

    If you hit any of your friends, the banner image is a random one from them. It looks very nice, I like that little touch. :)

    Really great update. I would like to see the notification count on the live tile be more like the native live tiles (email, messaging, etc). That little red circle with the number in it is too much like iOS.

    First thing I tried, too! Disappointed for STILL not having that feature. Also, 1/4 of news feed view space is wasted because of the banner. Boo! You had two ways to display the news feed on the previous version and one of them gave you more viewing space. Not anymore :'(

    Frankly I'll tag it "decent" whenever I'm able to "like" a comment inside a post.

    :P3 years, even. Looks a lot better though. I want the ability to tag people when I check in. I don't care if they add it to the native integration or the app. But why would I check in when I am out with others if I can't tag them (then I just look like a jerk). =)
